    There are many characters in this block whose name includes a color,
    just as we currently have WHITE and BLACK squares, arrows, etc.
    However, the representative glyphs for characters like RED APPLE and
    GREEN APPLE are no longer differentiated solely by color, as they were
    in the initial proposals. Names are just names, and glyphs are now
    monochrome (and not moving), so that satisfied me.
